Recommended Fabric Types:

  • The upper part of the shoe is designed for swim fabric, but it could also be made in quick dry athletic knits with at least 50% 4 way stretch. If you want to use them out of the water, they could also be made in other 4 way knits such as cotton lycra.
  • The lined version can be lined with more of the main fabric, or with swim lining.
  • The best fabric for the sole is Toughtek, but if that is not accessible to you, other options that work are plastic shelf liner, faux leather, real leather, etc.

    First time making shoe and I actually enjoyed it 😉 Instructions were easy to follow and I appreciate that its easy to adjust for our kids measurements. My kids love being able to have nice and comfy swim shoes for all our outdoor activities this summer.
